Kichel Family Misses Their Exit, Ends Up on Lakewood Scoop Instead of Mishpacha


I have no idea what happened,” a puzzled Yechiel Kichel admits. “I was just following Waze, like we always do, but somewhere near Squankum I must have missed a turn. And a deadline.”

“Cool!” Nachi says. “I always wanted to check this place out…I mean, I’m sure I’ll end up in BMG soon enough.”

“Yes, but I’m worried about our Mishpacha readers,” Chaykie wrinkles her brow. “They always tell us that we’re their favorite…they’re really going to miss us.”

“Well, we’re not leaving Mishpacha,” Nechama points out. “We’ll still be there, every week, on the back page. Feldheim has just published another bestselling collection of our strips so that readers can reread some of their favorite strips, and we’ve added in lots of fun bonus content, such as never-before-published strips, a behind-the-scenes section, a how-to-draw guide, and more!” 

“Oh, I think I get it,” Chaykie says. “But what will we do on Lakewood Scoop? We’re totally lost!”

“Nah,” Nachi dismisses her. “We’re the perfect gift for their readers! I’m sure tons of Lakewood Scoop readers would love to tag along with us as we mix social commentary with cholent jokes—we’re so relevant to them! We’re struggling with carpool, just like everyone who’s moved out to Jackson and Toms River, and could there be a better place to make jokes about shidduchim?”

“And I’m definitely in the right place if I want people to commiserate with me about school applications, or getting a kid into playgroup,” Chaykie says. “I guess you’re right.” 

“Of course I am!
